A Royal Wedding!
Get ready for the big day with paper dolls and a new coloring book from Dover!
Oh what a grand time to be a royal-watcher! Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are getting married! Is there anything better than the marriage of a prince and the making of a new princess?
However, Meghan’s new title will probably not be “Princess Meghan.” For various complicated British peerage reasons, it’s possible she will be styled the Duchess of Sussex. Seems like it should be easy: You marry a queen, you become a king. You marry a prince, you become a princess.
But honestly — who cares??? There’s going to be a brand new AMERICAN PRINCESS! That’s the best part for American royal-watchers!
Now you can celebrate right along with the happy couple on their wedding day, May 18, with two new books from Dover.
Harry & Meghan: A Love Story Coloring Book includes 30 pages of ready-to-color pictures that depict the couple through the stages of their courtship as they made headlines across the world. Each page is perforated so that you can easily display your creation.
There’s also the new Harry and Meghan: Paper Dolls. Each doll has seven costumes, including the outfits they wore on the day they announced their engagement.
Prince Harry is of course the son of Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana. Meghan Markle is of course the accomplished American actress and soon-to-be wearer of what’s sure to be the most beautiful wedding dress of the decade — if not the century. The world will have to wait for that dress and the associated honeymoon trousseau, which are going to be stunning and swoon-worthy. Dare we hope for another Dover release soon after the May 18 wedding date?
The nuptials will be celebrated at St. George’s chapel at Windsor Castle. It’s going to be grand, that’s for sure. The British are really, really good at this.
And Americans love that they’re good at it. Congrats to our own Meghan! We’ll be watching!
